Not blocky

I honestly don’t understand this dress, but it definitely draws my attention:

Ming-Na Wen at the LEGO Movie premiere 2-1-14

Ming-Na Wen wore this to the premiere of The LEGO Movie. (In other news, there is a LEGO Movie.) There’s a definite air of “I’m fifty years old and I’ll wear what I damn well please” to it.

    I think I like it but I think I’d like it better if it were longer. Nothing to do with her or her age or anything. I just think the pattern is too much for a shorter dress.

    She’s a mighty fine looking woman for a 50 year old. There are women a lot younger who wish they looked so good.

    I don’t understand the dress either, except in the sense that fashion designers ran out of good ideas a long time ago.

    Maybe her idea was to accentuate shoulders and make her hips narrower. To achieve “swimmer-boy” figure. Then she succeeded.

    The pattern on it makes me think of a Rorschach test.

    (And yes, there is a Lego movie. It’s been heavily advertised on Cartoon Network. As someone who spent much of her childhood happily building Lego stuff, I am apprehensive about it.)

    Watching her on her current ABC series, I mentioned Ms. Wen’s age to my mother-in-law, and she was very impressed.

    If you are tough enough, you can wear whatever you like.
